As you get closer and closer to the big day, it’s important to enjoy the present, the process and the present that will soon be delivered (pun intended!). With this arrival, have you considered any special or significant ways you’d like to greet, welcome and/or honour the new addition to your family? Perhaps you’d like to carry your baby in a cradleboard or wrap them in a moss bag; maybe you’ve picked out the soundtrack or specific sacred verse; perhaps there is a naming ritual, exposure to the environment or the sharing of sweets. Whatever your preference is, this is YOUR journey! Sharing these intentions with your maternity provider can help create awareness and advocacy for your wishes.
